Tastelife runs an eight-session weekly group course for those who suffer from any eating disorder, and for those who care for them. The course is non-threatening, educational, and encourages a self-help approach that really works.
It is run in the community or online by trained and accredited volunteers who care about those who struggle with eating disorders. Some have been sufferers themselves, or have supported them. Eating disorders are often a symptom of deeper problems and, whilst this is not an in-depth course to discover and deal with these underlying issues fully, it goes a long way to equipping participants with real understanding and coping strategies.
The course uses interactive and motivational methods to explain how to make changes in small steps towards health and wholeness. Its unique approach brings carers and sufferers together in an accepting environment where change is made possible. It is an experience that offers sufferers and carers a way forward, and puts the steering wheel firmly in the hands of the sufferer.
